Cardholders earn and redeem points for a variety of products and services ranging from cash off of vehicle purchases, parts, or service at Chrysler Group dealerships to travel, merchandise, and gift cards.
"This new credit card program is a way to thank our loyal customers who can earn discounts on service and parts at our dealerships, as well as cash off of new vehicle purchases," said Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck and Lead Executive for U.S. Sales.
